Responsible cooling

The CLIMESPACE system uses the natural low temperature of the water from the Seine to cool production equipment all year round. During the coldest winter periods, CLIMESPACE uses direct flow into the district cooling system: this is called “free cooling”. CLIMESPACE is an expert in this technology that allows a significant reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Supply to the production facilities is assured by electricity guaranteed to be from renewable sources. Through this approach, CLIMESPACE pursues its commitment into sustainable development and the preservation of natural resources.
